Nine-year-old Jo-Jo’s father loves everything about Muhammad Ali. His sports room, filled to the brim with Ali memorabilia, is his pride and joy. But when an impromptu game of catch with his sister causes Jo-Jo to accidentally damage his dad’s favorite Muhammad Ali autographed picture, he knows he must do something to make everything right. But what?

Jo-Jo suddenly begins believing in miracles again when he manages to score tickets to an Ali event in Harlem. As Jo-Jo and his dad board a train bound for New York City, his father shares entertaining stories about Muhammad Ali. Now more than ever, Jo-Jo cannot wait to meet the greatest boxer of all time—the Champ. As Jo-Jo and his father join the more than two hundred fans that line up outside the bookstore, Jo-Jo has no idea he is about to receive the surprise of a lifetime.

Dad, Me, and Muhammad Ali is the heartwarming story of a loyal son, his loving father, and a magical afternoon that changes both of their lives forever.
